This paper describes an innovative community engagement methodology designed to provide police with a ‘rich’ community intelligence picture of the ‘drivers’ of insecurity in neighbourhoods. Informed by empirical data from three case studies where this methodology has been trialled it is argued the approach facilitates a ‘community intelligence‐led policing’ approach. This has the potential to establish meaningful connections between community policing and other aspects of the modern police mission, such as managing the impacts of major crimes and responding to inter‐ and intra‐community tensions.
